Glamping: Perfect For Glamorous Adventurers

Glamping - a short-term for glamorous camping - has taken the world by storm in the past ten years. And whether you are into the camping lifestyle or not, it’s well worth looking into a glamping holiday for something a little different. There are, however, many different types of glamping experience, and lots of varying companies offering different things. Today, we’re going to take a look at some of your options - read on to find out if glamping would be a natural fit for your holiday plans! 

Bell tents
Bell tents are extraordinary places to stay. Your typical bell tent is supported by a single pole and tension cables, and they offer an incredible level of comfort if you are prepared to fork out on accessories, Some come with wood burners, beds, mattresses and delightfully soft flooring, as well as extras like makeshift cupboards and wardrobes. Yes, it’s a tent, but if you kit yours out enough, it will feel like a luxurious hotel room.
Safari Tents
As you would imagine from its name, the safari tent was developed for staying on the plains of Africa. It’s very similar to the bell tent in that you can expect all mod cons, but there are a few differences. Firstly, you can separate off areas into rooms, and secondly, the shape is more like a house - whereas the bell tent looks like a small circus tent marquee. Safari tents are also a little harder to erect and transport, as they are significantly more complicated and more cumbersome.

Want to experience something really different? Why not stay in a tree house? There are hundreds of specialist treehouse campsites all over the world right now, and their numbers are increasing every year. It’s the perfect option for the adventurous traveller, and you will use suspended rope bridges, ladders and climbing ropes to access and exit your treehouse of choice. A lot of modern treehouses have everything you need for a relaxing holiday, including proper beds, electricity, and a TV set. 
Mobile houses
If you can’t afford to buy a holiday home, why not get yourself a tiny house on wheels? These little houses can be transported to and from your destination by a trailer and will give you a level of comfort way beyond that which you can get from a tent. They aren’t cheap, of course, but if you use them once or twice a year for the foreseeable future, you’ll get your money back pretty quickly from the savings you gain on holiday spending
Yurts are another tent-like structure, albeit it a little more permanent. Again, you can get them with wood burners to keep you warm, and they are an increasingly common sight on campsites around the country - you get them a lot at festivals, too. Yurts are for a communal experience, however, as you can fit up to 6-8 people in them, and everyone shares the same space. 
Have you been glamping? It would be great to hear about your experiences, so feel free to share in the comments!
